    Then I will do what I and thousands of players have done since the launch of this game... adapt to, devise something new, overcome it and make it work for my style of gameplay.

    And it's simple. I hide my FLEETS under bases.. they can at will hit my base. That gives them a target they can try to vent on. A buddy bubbler takes that away. Person can't hit the base because of the bubble and can't hit the fleet because a person has to be a moron or drop connection to have a combat fleet caught.

    Buddy bubbles ARE an issue or do you not read the forums, with the hundreds of threads with the thousands of complaints and that is just the people that log on to the forums. When I can have a buddy bubble me for that 10th hit every time I hit a base so that there is no way you can seek vengeance for me destroying your base, it's a problem. And that is what people are doing everyday.


    You are making up those "stats". If the ability to hide under drac and regular bases was removed this new DP concept would be even more of a fail.


    Furthermore, by Kixeye allowing YOU to speak on THEIR behalf and answer player posts can only be seen as a poor attempt to have Kixeye designates infiltrate forums and suggest IMPROVEMENTS such as this only to say later "Hey, the players wanted this".


    If that isn't the case...kixeye employees should be responding to questions etc, not blow hards.

    Making up what? lol Read the forum. Do your own search for the threads about buddy bubbles. It's all there Lucky, whether you choose to acknowledge it or not. Buddy bubbles are a problem. Period.

    Umm, I am not speaking on ANYONES behalf other than my own. These are MY views and MY opinions based on what I have experienced and seen, just as whatever you or anyone else posts is their views. I have never at ANY point claimed I represent or am empowered by Kixeye to talk for them.

    I respond because I CHOOSE to.

    "For the last rule of Damage Protection, we feel it’s still necessary to allow players the one-hour of protection for those that are repeatedly getting their docks hit with rockets and/or snipers (SFB3). Also, if you attack another player’s fleets or base, the number of attacks made against you within the past four hours will be reset to zero and remove the bubble from your base (if already under Damage Protection)."

    This, by far is the single worst idea to put into this game. Why you ask? Because if someone comes and levels my base, then while I am repairing, I am out collecting salvage or just BP hunting. Someone else decides that the cargo ship that I am on, does not need to be mine anymore, attack, maybe even lose their fleet whatever. But I loose my bubble because I engaged in Fleet Vs Fleet combat. Not on purpose, but whatever, does not matter. Now my ruined flat base is open to attack again..... Sound like a problem to anyone else?
    .'

    Did you read it? It says if "you attack" not if your fleet is attacked and you engage in FvF.

    I totally agree with Hellstorm on this change. The new rules totally favor higher levels and heavy coiners. With this, they can keep players out for long periods of time, which is wrong. Also, losing your dp if u have one will prevent players from helping others, especially if they are damaged themselves. Take away losing a bubble if u hit a fleet, and i have no problem with anything else

    you dont need to moniter anything tell the team to use the half a brain they have. an 1 hour bubble wont cover dock repairs its unfair and we shouldnt be waiting for the team to moniter it. this has to be change to minimum time for lvl 10 docks to repair its 3 hours for my dock to fully repair and say i got 8 attacks on my docks per day that could put a me out of comission permanently if its timed right u might never leave ur docks not everyone can coin or wants to and if thats how kixeye finance departments wants to play it then fine its the worst decision u guys ever made and btw not everyone wants to leave a sector or can because you think if u get your base destroyed then leave the sector make a random relocation like in war commander then say that. its unreasonable to do this to people i dont want to be in alliance so dont try to force me too :(

    one hour for 8 attacks in 4 hours is not enough time in kixeyes world 1 hour will not repair anything that is important so basically you could be kept out of the game forever with that train of though way to go kixeye another great idea like the major update that screwed the game up in the first place!

    This is great news i think the bubble should start counting down from when repair base button is pressed also since getting rid of buddy bubbles does that also mean you can not BUY them as some players live under bubbles this isnt right but we know kixeye wants the money dont forget about players who dont coin and also the low lvl players as they have a very hard time in the game

    i personally do not like the bubble buddy system even though i did teach it to sector 308 when i was one of their leaders then i was sorry i did because they used it wrong and did not learn to make better bases and fight they choose to stay in a bubble not all but many did. i am level 32 and have always earned my bubble and very rare do i get one but when i do it is needed to repair my 4 hour dock and they wait for me to unbubble to hit me again as i do them and many times i have come home from work to find my dock down and can not play til the next day so if 1 hour is all the bubble i get my enemy will keep me out of the game yes i can hide under someones base if it allows. as some times that dont work you can t get under there and under a drac base my name and i will not change it as many know me by ms general jean i will not do, is a long name no one else in game that name :) so it is hard to hide that . i have been hit under a drac base by expret players so that dont all ways work and and all so the sector sees someone hiding and your not on they are going to try and hit you we need the bubble to last just the amount of time it takes to repair once repair done we can get out to fight back fleet to fleet fighting not going on as much with the attack being gone we veiw alot but my group the sea travelers love parties so we do raid sectors and get them out fighting and we never hit insector we are in except for the insects and they tend to warp out after a couple days us being there they dont like the dock being down all the time and being under a bubble so kixeye stop think bubble needs to be there til repair of dock is done and if we not on all day and come home to play repair does not start til we set it so 1 hour i wont get to play much as i am a target being the leader just a little bit of words of wisdom

    On the last change, if a player loses his DP for attacking a fleet, this will effectivly do one of two things. Cause him/her to stop playing for 2-3 days or force him to pay for base repairs. I dont think many will choose the latter. But some will so it is understandable why you would go this route. More $$ for you. It is business I guess. But is it GOOD business?

    Just an opinion but I say keep tweaking on it before implementing!!!!! And please, test before doing the update!!

    For those of us below level 30 that are being hit by the higher level bullies as soon as our bubble drops, the last change will pretty much put us out of the game. FvF battles while under DP is fair because your still risking ship vs. ship. Your base/resources may be protected but then so is your enemies because if you hit his base he is immediately free to hit yours back.

    That's where the player has to pay attention. If the player does not pay attention and hits a salv and don't LOOK to see if another player is nearby then they deserve to lose the bubble.

    It happens all the time where you go to load a salv and there was actually a ship there before you that was not being displayed because of glitches. There are also times you go to load a salv and the game gets confused and you enter battle with a ship that was not even close to the salv.

    greeting captains, we’ve received substantial feedback from the community that the current damage protection rules foster an environment that encourages “buddy bubbling.” we gone back to the drawing table and developed a new damage protection system that we hope balances the game for everyone. Read the details below and we look forward to reading your thoughts.

    Why change the damage protection rules?
    With the current set of rules, players are able to indefinitely hide behind the damage protection bubble by using the “buddy bubble” exploit. Obviously, this is not the desired game experience, and a tweak to the rules can prevent it.

    proposed new damage protection rules
    under the new system, there will be four different instances (two different situations) in which a player’s base would receive damage protection:
    • when a base has suffered 25% - 49% damage at the end of an attack, the base will receive 12 hours of damage protection.
    • when a base has suffered 50% - 74% damage at the end of an attack, the base will receive 24 hours of damage protection.
    • when a base has suffered 75% - 100% damage at the end of an attack, the base will receive 36 hours of damage protection.
    • when a base has been attacked 8 times in four hours (but suffered less than 25% damage), the base will receive 1 hour of damage protection.
    for the last rule of damage protection, we feel it’s still necessary to allow players the one-hour of protection for those that are repeatedly getting their docks hit with rockets and/or snipers (sfb3). Also, if you attack another player’s fleets or base, the number of attacks made against you within the past four hours will be reset to zero and remove the bubble from your base (if already under damage protection).

    q: I need to buddy bubble so i can build/upgrade my buildings; how will i make any progress?
    a: There’s no challenge in a game where players are immune to penalties. Suffering delays to build times is part of the game; however, there are things that you can do such as relocating to a sector that does not have as much base hitting, or join an alliance where other players will take you under their wing.

    q: Will you be changing how long it takes for certain buildings to repair like the dock or the launchpad?
    a: Currently there are no plans to change the repair times for any buildings; however, after the new damage protection system goes live, we will closely monitor the situation and see if any changes need to be made.

    q: My dock is going to get pummeled all the time; how will i be able to launch my fleets?
    a: If players are plotting against you, recruit some allies or join an existing group. Players will be much less likely to continuously attack your dock if they know that your allies will retaliate against them. There’s strength in numbers.

    heres an idea how about fix all the mods and people using cheats its not hard to spot and when your "service" department says theres nothing they can do, when you hit the same person and your comp. Gets sos screen on someother type of mod a players auto program is messign up the game boot them!!!in plain inglish stop bring **** and either make it so we all can use mods or no one! **** on a bull man thats bout what the service people are!

    I have a issue with the launch pad time, it already exceeds bubble time and now there will be less time to repair so it can be rendered useless by frequent attacks. The repair time for the rocket launcher should be reduced to remedy this matter.

    What you have said is true under the current system; I've got a bunch of guys from a neighboring sector keeping my launchpad down because its the only thing they can hit, the poor dears. I don't think its been operational for 2 or 3 days now and its only a level 4. The funny thing is, I don't normally use it, but its still annoying to see they came and did it again.

    If you insist on changing/deleting the bubbles, add more land. At least that way we can move all of our buildings inland. This might level the playing field more when a base is being attacked. It won't stop the attacker from destroying them, but he would have to work a little harder to take them out.

    NO NO NO this will allow the bigger players to run a sector and hit those that don't have the weapons to protect themselves.

    This will promote far more in sector hitting and you will see the newer and lower level players to leave the game for ever.

    It will make new players just quit all together and after a while the game will have so few buying player in it that Kixeye will have no choice but to close it down because of a lack of revenue.

    The 2 day buddy bubble is the only thing that gives the time required to do repairs and build up to be a bigger player.

    The only people that are complaining about the buddy bubble are the bigger players that want to farm in sector. This isn't game play this is a bully that is intimidating those at a lower level in a common sector.

    Shame on these in sector hitters for not helping those at a lower level, be a mentor and help build your sectors instead.

    I feel Kixeye is going about the buddy bubble problem all wrong. I don't care for buddy bubbles and don't use them. I however do know people that do. They need that protection from bullies. They are farmed constantly from the next sector. How is a level 27 suppose to stop a level 32? Kixeye needs to do the following...

    1. "Link fleet level to base level" fleet levels are based on hulls and components. A higher level player has access to better hulls and components, that a lower level does not. If a fleet is level 20, let that fleet hit level 20 and up. If it is 30, let it hit 30, and up.... etc. This removes the bully aspect of this game. it puts the "Battle" back in Battle Pirates.

    2. Remove the ability to rocket "docks and launcher". The ability to do this, gives an unfair advantage to someone. It is possible to keep someone from even playing this game, and as such, needs to be removed. I understand the need for rockets, but make it so they can only be used against ships, and turrets....


    If Kixeye would make these 2 changes, It would bring balance back to this game, stop all the drama, and would allow people to play and spend there money. there would no longer be a need to hide in a bubble. and the only people that would have a problem with this suggestion "ARE" the Bullies that want to crush someone 5 levels below them.........Please Kixeye, change to this before its too late, and this game quits being fun, and people quit playing. I love this game and do not want to see it fail......
    Current Level 63
    I don't understand your need for constant drama........its only a click to repair.

    On second thought; put it in place as you have it. Players can not abuse the damage protection by hiding behind bubbles and as long as a player can salv and mine then that should tide them over until their base is repaired. I hope it goes into place soon.

    People, will you quit whining about the "Lose my bubble if I attack a fleet part". Use your brains and think.

    A base costs nothing to repair. Keep your res low and make sure to stash your fleets elsewheres and the only thing you will need it for is to start the repair on a fleet. These proposed updates do not keep you from playing, not in the least. Step outside your little comfort bubble a little. You smash my base.. oooooh.. hurt me ROTFLMAO.

    I can get the res that you got from me back in 30 minutes by hitting Salvs. My fleets are not docked so taking out my dock is meaningless. Once you are thru either base hitting or FvFing THEN go hit repair. Go out, have fun at something away from the game then come back. Rinse and repeat.

    Really not seeing what the big deal is and why people are whining like girls.

    There was a time when I could find and destroy your 'stashed' fleets, and if that was still an option, I am sure you would change your tune. Since you are a level 34, you are probably the type of player that most people complain about, just run around smashing any base you can without any reason other than the fact that you can. And then justify it by saying that its only a game. Well, if its only a game, shut up and let glitcheye make any changes that they want.

    Maybe you could destroy smashed fleets, but as I don't know who you are, can't really say you destroyed ANY of MY stashed fleets. And no, my tune would still be the same as it is right now.

    I am one of those players that PLAYS the game. IF your base is open and in my range that I can hit, I'll hit you. If I make it in, then I make it in. All too often I see bases that are WAY below where they should be. All sents for defenses, all VM's for Defenses, not having fully upgraded Towers and sitting at level 32, and the list goes on.. these are the people that whine and cry. Getting Res at a base is less important since most bases, I'd say 90% don't keep much res, so hitting a base nowadays, at least for me, is about the fun of it and the challenge. I can get more just from salvaging in less time and for no repairs, than what it takes for one base hit.

    Again it's called BATTLE Pirates.. if you don't want to get hit, then don't level up as quick.. or fix your defenses...

    Rumseeker I think you ought to get over yourself and what an awesome and clever fighter you are. This thread is not about you, as hard as that may be to believe.

    EG. An alliance mark YOU, send in their people with ONLY a gb and rocket your dock. 4 hours repair on your level. They keep on doing that. After 8 attacks you get a hour bubble. Your dock takes 4 to repair. After an hour they resume.

    The result is that you now either coin your repairs or buy a bubble. A non coiner would not have that option so will be kept out of the game entirely.

    It is a daft idea, period.

    I never said or implied that this was about me or that I was an awesome or clever fighter. YOU seem to think that so perhaps it's YOU that needs to get over it.

    And yeah I know all about alliances and they have TRIED that very same tactic... how in blazes do you think I came up with the bit about keeping my fleets out of my dock in the first place? It's called adapting to what is thrown at you in the game. It's why THAT tactic fails to have the effect that they want. People have to play SMART and not keep all their fleets at dock.

    If a person does NOT think and plays STUPID and does NOT adapt, then yes this will shut their game down hard and very abruptly. But this is like ANY OTHER game update. Players will absorb it, some will moan and whine, some will quit, others will still move in to take their place and play. The game will go on. Some will love it, some will hate it. But it gets rid of buddy bubbling, it gets rid of bubble sniping of fleets and means that IF you want to live in a bubble then you better have someone at your base each and every time you attack.

But it gets rid of buddy bubbling, it gets rid of bubble sniping of fleets and means that IF you want to live in a bubble then you better have someone at your base each and every time you attack.

    Sorry mate somewhere you and I miss each other. I take it then your fleets scattered over a zillion places never gets damaged or self repair where you hide them. The EG I gave keeps your dock out of action as long as it suits said alliance, and yes I have seen them operate around the clock.

    Ok bout **** time they took out the buddy bubbling!!! All I gotta say to ppl that dont like the change in rules is, if you dont like being attacked every 36 hours dont play the game. This is a wargame so either buck up and play it like a wargame or go play dolly dress up

    I keep my fleets out hidden under Drac bases. Until this recent update I was just keeping them in the sectors I could reach. At most I have 1-2 fleets docked at any one time and that is only when I either have a 12+ hour bubble or have to repair them. Obviously an event changes that but most people focus on the event at those times rather than wars.

    looks like the coiners win again...looks like its time to find another game to play..when a level 27 player has stronger base and fleet then a lavel 32(thats me) no use playing game...i cant coin to keep up
    Really, a level 27 is better than your level 32? Hmm, they don't have DU4, you do. Right there that is enough.

    I see 32's and 33's bubbling each other, enough.

    Since you are a level 34, you are probably the type of player that most people complain about, just run around smashing any base you can without any reason other than the fact that you can. And then justify it by saying that its only a game. Well, if its only a game, shut up and let glitcheye make any changes that they want.
    Isn't this the point? Hitting bases?

    I hit out of sector, I try not to hit the same person over and over, and I hit any level 29-35 (haven't come across a 36 yet). What should I be doing when I play the game?
